Splash at Somalisa Acacia

Summertime safaris can be unbearable if there’s no relief from the heat. Fortunately, at Somalisa Acacia there’s a fantastic pool on the main deck, overlooking the waterhole. Here, kids can cool down and play while mum and dad enjoy a refreshing drink at the bar (or dive in too!).

Family-friendly spaces

The family-friendly Somalisa Acacia features two family tents with connecting rooms for the kids, as well as two standard units. A mix of textures throughout, including brick, natural wood and copper, add to the natural, organic feeling of the camp. It’s enhanced by a central area that overlooks a small waterhole where elephants often come to drink – it’s an idyllic setting for a family getaway.

Beyond the game drives

More and more, families are wanting their kids to experience more than “just” traditional game drives when they’re on safari. That’s why no two days are ever the same at Somalisa Acacia. As well as morning and afternoon game drives, families can enjoy cultural visits as well as walking safaris for children aged 16+. During this time, younger children can go on a guided bush walk around the camp to learn about smaller animals and tracks. There’s something for everyone.
